Albert Szmigielski, Blockchain Researcher and Engineer, explains Blockchain.

A simple definition would be that Blockchain is simply just a database, a way to store information. What makes Blockchain different is that there is an incentive structure for people to maintain that database. There’s also a people to earn the right to write information to the datebase. So it’s a database but it’s got many new and unique features that make it a little bit better than your average database.
